“Dignity, always dignity”.
Totally unflappable in the face of a tremendous frisky puppy.

The pup is as Irish as Paddy’s Pig.

The giant acorn in the background dramatically exacerbates my already strong tendency to assume he’s hanging out and drinking tea at Toad Hall.

Bernese are gentle giants, one of my aunts used to have some. Pretty active. I think they’re most happy when you give them something to herd. At least walks in the countryside with the extended family were like that.

I was expecting a giant squirrel to dash out of the trees, grab it, and dash into the trees again.

I have one of the Wit - Dignity - Compassion - Dogs badges in this photo from Higgins’ re-election campaign. It was official merch and I loved it. They had a pop-up shop in Dublin with a space for kids to hang out and colour pictured of Brod and Sioda. It was really wholesome (and my cat was missing when I went in and had a long chat, which helped as we just gushed about animals. And we found my cat a day or two later!)

I watched it with the sound off and all I could think is why are you not stopping to tell that dog what a good dog he is because he is clearly a very good dog and so forth.

That’s a good dog, is what I’m getting at.
